“The mission of the St. Louis County Police Department is to work cooperatively with the public, and within the framework of the Constitution, to enforce the laws, preserve the peace, reduce fear and provide a safe environment in our neighborhoods.”
We of the St. Louis County Police are unique in both our origin and mission. We remain to this date the only County Police Department within the State of Missouri.
Our Department began with 95 police officers and 18 civilian employees. We have since grown to become the third largest provider of local law enforcement in the State and now have an authorized strength of over 835 commissioned officers as well as over 250 civilian members.
The Department continues to embrace technological advances to improve the quality of police work. The Department is now operating on its third-generation of Computer Aided Dispatching (CAD). Patrol cars are equipped with computers, and the Department’s MOBILENET system provides officers with access to criminal records, digitized mug shots and police report files. The Crime Lab has also been a beneficiary of new technology, ranging from state-of-the-art DNA examination to DRUGFIRE, which is a firearms identification program.
One thing that has not changed over all these years is our commitment expressed in our motto: To Serve and Protect
